Why does Choose Energy run a credit check?
The providers we work with require a soft credit check to determine whether your credit score meets a set threshold. If your credit score falls below that threshold, they may require a deposit to begin service. We run a soft credit check — the kind that doesn’t affect your score. In addition, we only run it once. We’ll check your score against all of the providers on our marketplace so you can see the best electricity rates in Texas and find a plan to fit your needs. See our deposits guide for more information about the credit check process. Then, enter your ZIP code to find electricity plans near you.
